Must Haves

I wasn’t sure how to really start this post so I’m just going to jump right in. These are a few things that to me are must haves:

  • Pressed Powder (Mac MSF Natural)
My skin has always been troublesome so for me it was imperative i find makeup that doesn’t cloge my pores or break me out. This is it. My holy grail, with the correct application you can get med. coverage or a light dusting to set your foundation or concealer. It is mineral makeup meaning its light weight will not break you out and it is super easy to apply and blend.
  • Brush Cleanser
There are times when you can exactly wash your brushes, when that happens this is your best friend. You don’t want to use and use your brushes without cleaning or disinfecting them because all you will do is deposit all the oils and impurities that are on your brushes from the last time you used them back on your face and no one wants that. Brush cleanser is the best way to clean off the entire old product, oils and dust in between washing your brushes properly.

  • Brushes
Now for brushes this was the hardest part because to me i need them all. lol I was able to narrow it down to 5 so here they are:

             -Foundation brush (sigma F80 Flat top kabuki)
Gives a Great flawless airbrushed look whether you use liquid or powder foundation.
             -Highlight brush (mac 188)
Great multipurpose brush. Highlight (liquid or powder), cream blush, powder blush, press powder can all be applied with this brush.
             -Shader brush (sigma E55)
Pack on color and blend it out. Can use it with cream or packed shadows, loose pigment or paints.
             -Tapered blending brush (sigma E40)
Want to blend out those harsh edges or apply a light dusting of color to your brow bone or crease.
             -Small angled brow brush (mac 208)
I love this brush because not only can you fill in your brows, get a great cat eye but also line your lips. Small dense brush to apply just the right amount of product where you need it.
  • Eyelash curlers
I am pretty sure this is self-explanatory, who doesn’t want great curled up lashes, and I know I do.

  •  Neutral eye palette (ud naked palette)
You can get this anywhere whether it is at your nearest drug store or department store. Small compact and has all the essential colors for a nice neutral look or great Smokey eye.
Last but not least
  • Concealer (benefit Erase paste)
Have trouble areas, dark circles, blemishes, redness, discoloration or even if you just want to highlight an area concealer is your best friend. It’s good to give your skin a break from foundation so to do this i break out a little concealer for the problem spot and then set it if a little powder and your good to go.

This list by no means is all i will ever need but are just a few of the things i reach for on a daily biases or if I’m in a time crush or have to pack for light travel. Comment below on a few of your must have who knows might come across something new that you just won’t be able to live without.
